A Democrat Civil War Beakes Out Over Closed Door Deal

A month ago, we found out that Senator Joe Manchin had, in exchange for a side deal, pledged to support Senator Joe Biden’s tax-and-spend plan. If Democrats in the Senate get their way, a natural gas pipeline might be built in Manchin’s home state.

Because of this, Manchin changed his position and now supports high taxes and expenditures.
However, it appears as though Manchin will come to regret his decision since Bernie Sanders is about to derail this arrangement in the near future.

Sen. Sanders criticized the agreement that Manchin and Schumer had reached about climate change, using the standard left-wing climate alarmism bullshit. Additionally, he is encouraging Democrats in the Senate to cast their votes against the measure.

It is likely that the Senate will reject this accord if Democrats continue to withhold their support for it. After Democrats forced Republicans to pass the spending package against their will, it is not obvious whether Republicans are willing to support this compromise or not. Therefore, Manchin needs the cooperation of every Democrat in order to make this a reality assuming it can be done via reconciliation.

However, if Sanders is successful in persuading a sufficient number of Democrats to join his climate bandwagon (a viewpoint that the vast majority of Democrats adhere to like a religion), the side arrangement will be null and void.

This follows progressives in the House of Representatives earlier threat to scuttle the accord. Therefore, it is highly likely that Manchin betrayed the voters of West Virginia and the majority of Americans, for nothing. He voted in favor of a bill that will increase taxes and cause inflation to become even more severe. And in exchange, he will receive nothing at all. A useful reminder that one should never make a deal with the left.
